Talk:Catholic Church

A couple questions: 1. Are other Rites within the Catholic Church also considered to be Roman Catholic? The opening paragraph suggests so, but I don't think so. 2. Do most Protestant churches recognize Penance as a sacrament, like the closing paragraph suggests? I was under the impression that most Protestant churches just had two sacraments--Baptism and Eucharist/Communion. Also, regarding Peter, I think it would be better to say that Peter's authority derives from Jesus giving him the keys to the kingdom and building the Church upon him (Matthew 16:18) and not simply because he was the leader of the apostles. (In Acts, his role isn't as central as, say, James or Paul.) Kolbe 23:43, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

1. The Latin Rite, which is the largest, is sometimes called the Roman Catholic Church, particularly by Protestants. There are a number of other Rites within the Catholic Church, such as the Ukranian Rite, the Maronites, the Copts, and the Syrian Rite, which also hold the Pope to be the universal pastor. Catholics hold that little remains to prevent communion between themselves and the Eastern Orthodox Churches (Russian, Greek, Serbian, etc.).
2. The Anglo-Catholic and most Lutheran Churches hold to some form of Penance as it is practiced in the RCC. Some Lutheran Churches have a formal rite where parishoners confess their sins to each other on the altar. Most Protestant Churches profess the sacraments of Baptism and Lord's Supper, but in practice regard these as ordinances.Teresita 21:16, 2 April 2007 (EDT)

Post V2 R.C. opposition

I find the edit of my small edit of Ultramontane vs Gallican to be unwarranted. It is not simply birth control (which is controversial as to being an ex cathedra dogma) but papal infallibility that finds dissent, and not simply by laity, as even the WP article on this states, Küng, Garry Wills) though (in addition to the one i referenced) a 1989–1992 survey of young Catholics of multiple nationalities showed that only 36.9% affirmed the teaching on papal infallibility, with 36.9% denying it.[1] Daniel1212 18:31, 2 October 2009 (EDT)

the solution is for you to make two separate paragraphs. RJJensen 18:39, 2 October 2009 (EDT)
It is a separate paragraph already, and as stated it pertained most directly to the issue of opposition to papal infallibility to papal authority by laity. But while the latter ref. deals first with those who "disagree with the Pope on articles of faith", the former focuses on Kung's opposition to birth control and abortion. These are only being two manifestations of opposition to PI, and if anything, it is those which should necessitate a separate para, while i should have provided better references as re. PI. Sorry-should have read it more thoroughly.Daniel1212 22:53, 2 October 2009 (EDT)
